I drove back to VT the way that truckers do. Clear all big cities by rush hour so I left early at 830 . There was still plenty of trafic on the NJ Turnpike but once I cleared Troy NY I had the road to myself. However the Northway I 87 is the most beautiful stretch of road and it is criminal to drive at night. I was also not prepared for the fog banks. Frequently I hadv to cut speed .
In NYC we don't have fog so I am not experienced with driving in it. I am the rare driver that also prefers night time driving because it is easier to pick out who is where by headlights.
I will not have to deal with Laborday traffic.
Have a good labor day.
